This is our final installment of the Roundtable Talk with Dr. Amy-Jill Levine and Dr. Marc Zvi Brettler. On the table for discussion is the issue of harmonization of the biblical text. Why do Christians feel the need to harmonize and the Jews don't? Dr. Nicholas Schaser joins the conversation to talk about the role of "sola scriptura" in influencing the views of Protestant Christians.
